Cavallo’s All-Purpose Saddle Pads Help as Your Horse’s Back is Changing

Did you know that your horse’s back continuously changes shape? Your horse may build muscle, lose or gain weight, or simply change with age. If you checked your saddle’s fit at the start of the spring riding season, it’s time to check your fit again. Plus, all horses need extra help to carry weight evenly as they compensate for imbalanced riders, saddle pressure points, or imbalanced saddles. You probably know a horse who is high withered, mutton withered, sway-backed, or have one shoulder bigger than the other? The Cavallo Horse & Rider saddle pads can help your horse through many changes. Check out the saddle-fitting guide at Plus, read on to find out how Cavallo’s all-purpose saddle pads can help your horse’s fit for English or Western riding and how bridge and build-up pads may help your saddle fit better.

Help for Your Horse:
Cavallo’s pads improve saddle fit by contracting at pressure points and filling gaps. The pads redistribute weight off of the horse’s spine and onto the muscle. They are designed to provide wither relief with a unique cutback feature. Plus, the closed-cell compression allows horses’ shoulder blades to move freely. The pads are also lightweight and have an aerated design to keep your horses cool during rides.

Cavallo’s Tri-Density Solution combines the shock-absorbing power of three materials. Technologically advanced materials allow the pads to provide more shock absorption than pads twice as thick. The thinner pad creates more room for the articulation of the horse’s scapula during riding. Cavallo’s Tri-Density Solution layered foam construction is highly shock absorbent. The pads are durable with genuine leather butt joints, nylon bindings, and aeration perforations. They are also easy to care for—they’re machine washable and drip to dry. You can even pressure wash them. The pads are also reversible with 100 percent Merino wool on one side and closed-cell shock-absorbing foam on the other.
